Natural Home Cures Mangosteen's Xanthones - A Scientific Look

Xanthones(1) are a unique class of biologically active compounds possessing numerous bioactive capabilities such as their antioxidant properties. They are a group of plant polyphenols, biosynthetically related to the flavonoids.

Polyphenol: A group of plant chemical substances characterized by the presence of more than one phenolic group.(2) Polyphenols are responsible for the color of some plants and are considered strong antioxidants with potential health benefits.(3)

Flavonoid: Over 5,000 naturally occurring flavonoids have been characterized from various plants.(4) The beneficial effects of plant-derived food are often attributed to flavonoid compounds, rather than the other nutrients in the food, as the flavonoids show a wide range of biological effects.(5)

Chemically speaking, a molecule of xanthones is made up of six carbon atoms in a conjugated ring system consisting of a backbone molecule and various chemical groups attached to it.

The backbone consists of two benzene rings bridged through a carbonyl group and oxygen. Each ring is connected in a fused formation, thus, not allowing free rotation about the carbon-carbon bonds.

This unique backbone along with the type and position of the attached chemical groups define specific functionalities (properties) of xanthones.
